Pros: Bokeh, sharpness (very good already at TA, excellent from f/2 up), color yield, compact size, excellent construction, quality materials (glass and metal only), flare resistance, focus on infinity exactly at the bottom of the dial, 55mm filters

Cons: completely manual (but those who buy it know well), paint of the barrel that spoils easily, depending on the machine and the diaphragm, can tend to over/under expose slightly (/- 1/3-2/3 stop)

Opinion: I start from the only "cons", in my own respect decidedly marginal: - the paint of the barrel that is easily worn (to say, I also have the Zeiss Sonnar 135mm f/2.8 and Sonnar 200mm f/2.8 and both are much better in this respect); - it's a completely manual optics, so forget the shots "on the fly": it takes a few moments to compose and focus (especially at TA: at f/1.4 the depth of field is really small and the focus takes a bit of attention and time); - sometimes tends to over/under expose slightly (/- 1/3-2/3 stop): just know it or at the limit easily correct it in PP. After this, my judgment on this view is totally positive: - despite being f/1.4, already at TA has a high sharpness, which becomes very high from f/2 up; - the bokeh it generates is beautiful, soft, with a very gradual transition between focus and blurring, which gives three-dimensionality and "magic" to the portraits; - the chromatic rendering is excellent, very natural (great for landscape photos, along with extreme sharpness at f/4 or f/5.6); - compact, but pleasantly "massive", solid: it is made only of glass and metal and you see; - the treatment gives it an excellent resistance to the flare (be careful that it is in good condition, when you buy it); - focus on infinity exactly at the bottom of the dial (feature that shares with all the other Zeiss in my possession), great for star photos; - diameter filters from 55mm, which results in the ability to buy excellent filters without fainting (shared diameter with the 28mm f/2.8 and the 135mm f/2.8, with which you can then "swap" the filters). I have never tried the modern counterparts of the Zeiss house (they tell me they are even better), but I can assure you that even this "old" is an excellent purchase, even on the demanding sensors of modern machines.

Pros: Sharpness, bokeh, size

Cons: I don't know

Opinion: I join the chorus of congratulations for this 1980s perspective that still makes a splash on modern sensors, both FF and APSC. "Right" dimensions, excellent dexterity, the focus on the Sony A7II is agile with focus peaking although you have to be very careful about the light conditions (in my opinion it is always better to focus on a contrasting point), it has a stunning sharpness to a 40 aa optics ago and, above all, a blurred one to be dosed with caution because the use that is made of the depth of field with these optics is completely different from the digital ones (compared with Fuji, excellent optics). For the rest excellent and vital colors, used on an FF is the classic focal that we used and use in millions of people, on an APSC it becomes a 75mm that makes playing with the shots even more easily. For the price it has today I highly recommend it.

Pros: Sharpness, bokeh, optical and constructive quality, flare resistance, colors.

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: It's a great target. At first it is very difficult to use. The exclusively manual fire and the aperture of the F 1.4 diaphragm are difficult to reconcile. I confess to having hated it at the beginning: frustrated by so many shots out of focus. Then, I figured out how to use it: light overexposure and slight compensation of the frontfocus. And it was love. Sharpness over every limit, an incredible bokeh effect, vivid colors. In general, it can give the photographs a magical effect. It literally leaves open-mouthed. It became irreplaceable in my kit. A MUST have!

Pros: construction, aesthetics, fuzziness, sharpness already at TA, fluidity of the focus ring, resistance to flare, neutral and faithful colors, three-dimensionality.

Cons: some chromatic aberration to TA in situations of strong contrast (easily corrected in PP), not having it.

Opinion: One of the best goals I've ever had, definitely the 50mm Definitive. excellent already at TA, from f2 is a blade, has an embarrassing clarity.I did not expect much definition from a lens of the 90s on modern sensors.rnusarlo is very easy on the Sony a6000 thanks to the focus peaking, and will shortly adapt it on the canon 6D where I have already installed magic lantern, and I will update the review with my impressioni.rnSicuramente a goal for those who do not need an instant maf.

Pros: Excellent build quality, performance by Zeiss, blurred delicate, resistance to glare

Cons: A soft little according to my tastes in TA, only 6 aperture blades

Opinion: classical focal par excellence on 35mm. excellent construction quality standards as Zeiss. The main optical defects are corrected by conventional coating T *, while the simplicity of the design gives easy shots in any light condition. My sample used was purchased across the Alps by a professional photographer who used via adapter on FF Canon. I use this lens on Sony A7R II by Chinese adapter C / YE mount and I must say I was amazed by the quality of the files that churns this coupled machine / goal! The focus ring is very precise through and with the help of the peaking focus is really a breeze. For those who do not need extreme speed when the focus is definitely recommended by me. Sharpness and bokeh offer large three-dimensionality to his own compositions. The barrel is massive and gives a pleasant feeling of strength. For those who enjoy the 45-degree angle to ambientati portraits, landscapes and street Decidedlyrecommended body! rn
